We are going to do this over Christmas....now I know what to do with all those elementary school crayons! Can't Wait.
What do you use as the canvas?
What size hot glue gun do standard crayons fit into?
It's fun if you hot glue them onto a board then used a blow dyer too!
heard of using a hair dryer... but GLUE GUN? genius!!!
It messes up your glue gun but is faster than a hair dryer:)
How many crayons does this take?! I love it!!
I did this! It was so much fun!!!
I dig it.
@Lou Traylor very neat!
okay. i just tried to do this with the EXACT SAME glue gun... didn't think to break off the back pusher thing, but still i was never able to get the melted bit to drip out of the end. it was very disappointing. it just bubbled up and went all over the sides. i thought it would just drip out like liquid once it got melted enough, but it never did. do you think taking off the back pusher would do the trick or did i do something else wrong?
I did it and was pretty successful! Except when I was blow drying crayons, surrounding ones that were only half melted started blowing all over and made a mess!
How awesome!!! Very creative!!!
This whole thing with the rainbow crayon stuff is viral now... Neat way to apply it, but I'd rather see variations. Creative application, overdone execution.
Ahh, you'll ruin your glue gun, why
...not use the blow dryer... Unless... Have you found a way to clean the glue gun?
IF you own an embossing gun (for Stamping) it makes the melting process so much easier & neater.
@Kailee Smith youll love this
How does it drip all the way down to the bottom, do you hair dry it after?
I guess, if it doesn't go all the way down. I've only done it with a heat gun. I haven't tried the glue gun method yet.
Can't a nozzle on a blow dryer be used for more direct heat that doesn't blow the other melted crayons around?
I wouldn't mind messing up my glue gun . They are literally like 3 dollars . I want to try this !!
rePinned! dont forget to stick to me
Do you have to buy a ton of crayon boxes to get the colors you want?
That's so cool - never thought of using a glue gun!! Thanks for the idea!
I just used a hair dryer. Worked fine and didn't mess anything up
I'm trying this!! It looks a
Does it ruin your glue gun? I want to do this too!
If you want to do this the other melted way, use a heat gun not a hairdryer. I've tried it with both, and the heat gun works the best.
saw this and it actually looks great!
it looks great! I remember doing something similar many years ago with colored candles. Your method looks like a lot more fun
Melted wax won't stay on clothing, but it would make a great resist dyeing technique...maybe put the wax on, then dye with kool-aid or use a spray bottle with bleach. I have TOO MANY projects to try though lol
Are you using a high heat or low heat glue gun?
try a mini low-heat glue gun for this type of thing. and buy a cheap one because it does tend to ruin the glue gun. most craft stores have them for under 5 dollars.
My glue gun just CAUGHT FIRE so be really careful!!! I was using the mini hi temp gun from JoAnns. Perhaps the low temp one is more safe! Either way, proceed with caution!!!
do u think this could work with fabric crayons?

I've done several of these. Does any one have any ideas on what to do to keep the crayon from peeling or chipping off after it dries?
This is an amazing DISASTER Piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Glue crayons to a canvas, set canvas in car, take hair dryer to hot crayons. WAY less mess than a hot glue gun!

Made with crayons and a hot glue gun
Different way of doing melted crayon art: Place crayons in a pattern or 'drawing' and then melt for more interesting shapes instead of the usual drip * need to do this with the kids *
